XsunX Signs Joint Business Agreement with Solar Module Manufacturer
Aliso Viejo, CA – March 2 , 2011 – XsunX, Inc. (XSNX), the developer of hybrid, thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) solar cell technologies and manufacturing processes, today announced the company has entered into an agreement with Telecomps Technology Corp., Ltd. (Telecomps) for the use of its CIGSolar™ technology. Under the agreement, Telecomps and XsunX will work together to complete back-end CIGSolar™ solar module assembly capabilities to produce solar modules using XsunX CIGSolar cells.
Joseph Grimes, XsunX’s President and COO, commented, “This is a great opportunity for both companies. Telecomps’ growing capabilities in the module assembly business will provide us a head start and will help accelerate the adoption of our CIGSolar technology in the rapidly growing Chinese market.” Mr. Grimes continued, “We have targeted the silicon module manufacturing industry as a major customer segment and, with the assistance of Telecomps providing competitive OEM module assembly, we are positioning XsunX customers for success as they compete in the $18 billion silicon solar cell industry. In addition to Telecomps a number of other manufacturers are now seriously exploring the use of our CIGSolar technology as a robust and less expensive alternative to silicon.”
Founded in 1991, Telecomps has expanded its expertise in the electronics component industry building a network of capabilities in the fast growing turnkey OEM solar module assembly sector. Well respected within their industry, Telecomps’ growing capabilities specialize in both silicon and thin-film solar module assembly.
XsunX, Inc. is developing and has begun to market a new manufacturing process to produce low cost, high efficiency thin-film Copper Indium Gallium (di) Selenide (CIGS) thin film solar cells. The patent pending system and processing technology, which XsunX calls CIGSolar™, focuses on the mass production of individual thin-film CIGS solar cells that match silicon solar cell dimensions and can be offered as a non-toxic, high-efficiency and lowest-cost alternative to the use of silicon solar cells. The company is offering licenses for the use of the CIGSolar™ process technology and plans to generate revenue through licensing fees and manufacturing royalties for the use of the CIGSolar™ technology.
